First Day of Nursery School

Dane started school last week! We had the best time getting him ready for his first day. Our favorite part was giving him his new Diego backpack. He LOVES it and takes it everywhere with him. We tried to put it on his back, but he was all about the wheels!

Here we are walking to the school. We were lucky that daddy was able to stay home from work for the big day (and to take tons of pictures :).
It is standard protocol to leave your backpack in a giant bin as soon as you arrive. In this pic, one of Dane's teachers is asking him to put his backpack in the bin. He promptly said "No, I want to keep it" and carried it all over the playground. It was hilarious. It didn't leave his side. The cutie in the skirt and hat is Dane's friend, Katie. We're so happy they are in class together!So....Dane did really well when we left and even did well on the playground, but his teachers said he was tearful the entire time in the class room. Here is what we found at pick-up time. Sad!!!!!!
A few minutes in mom's arms, and all was well. He was definitely ready to leave though :-)And here's our school boy with daddy!!! Hopefully things will be easier for Big D this week!

Good boy Dane. First day is sometimes the hardest.

Jenny cried first few day when I dropped her off then she cried when I picked her up. She wanted to stay and play more. (stacy's sister)
